OUR MISSION: To facilitate communication among glass artists, to encourage education and promote excellence in the glass arts.


For multiple thin strips of even widths, score all the strips first. Then break
all the scored strips off the remaining sheet. Start by breaking the scored
strips in the middle, then in the middle again, until there are only two to
break apart. Cut running pliers are most useful until the last two thin strips
are to be divided. At that point, two breaking pliers held on each side of the
score produce excellent results.
